Save it for Comic Con – Robot’s Root 12 June 2018

This Spider-Verse movie may be the best comic-related anything ever, film specific. I’m astonished at how good it FEELS. Also, i’m in it for the cop dad.

 

  • Doctor Doom looks less likely, meaning even more likely a wholesale transition to Marvel’s stable.
  • For this guy, the Hit-Girl and related properties have lost their luster, but Millar and Vaughn have plans for more. Meanwhile, there’s another Kingsman movie in the works (I’m OK with it I suppose) and a turn of last century prequel (that’s what caught my eye, obviously)…
  • How about a GoT prequel set millennia earlier? You got it. Add it to the flaming pile…
  • I’ve got a fever, and the only cure is more Predators in my Predator. I guess.
  • Geoff Johns is out, but is he down? He’s still writing Green Lantern Corps, and now rumor has it Jim lee is stepping up to try and right the DCEU ship.
  • Kidding looks A M A Z I N G.
  • Bad Times at the What i TOLE!
  • Here’s a summary of all the supposed DCEU films in development. It’s stir crazy.
  • I admit I kind of want to draw all these heroes killed in Incredibles 1… or already dead… or what have you. Capes, bots, etc.
  • A well-reasoned and thoughtful consideration to the question: Is is disrespectful to drive around a dead Autobot as a car?
  • Tran leaving social media was probably good for her mental health, but sucks for all of us. She was an awesome celeb to follow, and really loved Star Wars fandom, the same crew that ate her alive and then complained about the taste.
  • I don’t know why, but I like when supers costumes are damaged or modified, as if purpose built and then evolved as circumstances change. Like Captain America’s main suit transitioning to a ‘covert ops’ version, in turn basically debadged and worn down by the time Infinity War happens. Or, as we see in this pic of Janet Van Dyne, layered.
  • So stoked on the new Hellboy film. Mignola nails it.
  • These games continue to fascinate me, even as I have no time to play them. The societal evolution in the worlds and the mechanics that allow for it is good reading.
  • I haven’t even CRACKED Star Wars: Battlefront 2 yet, but the Han Solo packs look good.

Thats all for today… still decompressing from SFCC and preparing for Fandemic!

YAY Preacher is renewed for S02. I’m only one episode in, but I plan on loving the hell out of this project.

I don’t want to tread in body shaming controversy waters here (so to speak), but I’m with the apparently minority dissenting opinion, that he isn’t a negative stereotype of Polynesian male bodies, but a cartoon character. Here’s a film where we get another non-white ‘princess’ who happens to not even be emaciated, and this is where the controversy suddenly shifts? My word.

The story about Marvel/Disney and Fox discussing more alignments in film continues to spread. I’m all for it, as long as Sony’s cashing checks and Marvel/Disney is making moves.

Abraham Attah has been seen in high school garb wandering around in early shooting for SM:Homecoming, and of course everyone has jumped on the Miles Morales thing. I’m kind of hoping not. I love that character, but I’m begging, BEGGING, for this to be a simpler, tighter kind of film. We’ll see. It DOES ave like 33 villains already and a dubious costume.

What dubious costume you ask? These photos came out last night and we talked about them in the Robot-Kraken podcast we were recording soon thereafter. I called it Spider Garters. I mean, what is even. What is EVEN. Everything about this is confusing, coming off of the sweet design in Civil War.

This was an interesting story from last week: in an interview, Affleck seemed to suggest he turned down the hot seat for Force Awakens. I’m very happy with that film, but I have to wonder if he’s nervous about hitching to the wrong train, as far as directing goes. If his Batman kicks ass, it will be a triumphant counter to the negative stigma of BVS (in which he wasn’t even producing, let alone directing) but if not…

Barkhad Abdi is a DOPE LOOKING INDIVIDUAL. Another rad casting choice for Blade Runner 2, the impossible film that should never be but somehow might end up being awesome.

Bosslogic has been going apeshit with the manips lately, and it’s been fun to watch. This one was pretty good: a hypothetical post-rebirth Superman at the end of Justice League. I vote no mullet, definitely.

Here’s the colorized (Dave Stewart) version of a recent Geoff Darrow cover that blew my mind. So many details (well, yeah) and gags in the signage…

And thus…
